On each move fill a cell or cells with your symbol. The number of stones dropped follows a 121 cycle (ie, one stone, then two stones, then one stone, and so on). In short, we say it uses a (121)* progressive mutator.
Two friendly cells in a small triangle win that triangle for the player.
Two won small triangles in the same large triangle win that for the player.
Two won large triangles for a player win the game.
The notation is, top-triangle = 1; bottom-left = 2; bottom-right = 3;
and largest triangle = 1st co-ordinate down to smallest = 3rd co-ordinate.
